Struck Pedestrian Gets Large Insurance Settlement
An Oregonian was recently walking through a parking lot to a bus stop when a driver carelessly reversed into him. This pedestrian was knocked over with such force that his wrist and hip broke. He called Dwyer Williams Cherkoss PC, experienced auto accident and pedestrian injury attorneys, and hired us to advocate on his behalf in this pedestrian accident injury claim.
Our client incurred significant accident-related medical expenses, which exceeded the at-fault driver’s insurance policy limits. We contacted the at-fault driver’s insurance company and were able to convince it to disclose the at-fault driver’s policy limit. Once we knew this dollar value, we next informed our client’s health insurance provider that there would be insufficient insurance money to pay all of our client’s accident-related medical and treatment bills.
After several rounds of negotiation, our client’s health insurance provider agreed to cut its lien by 50 percent. With this reduction in place, we were able to get pay off our client’s accident-related medical expenses and to secure him a large pain and suffering settlement. Our client was thrilled with his settlement package and with the professional pedestrian injury representation given to him by Dwyer Williams Cherkoss PC.
